FOUR years ago you came to us, eager, questioning, yet confident; — seeking 
for truth and asking to understand. Rejoicing in your earnestness, we 
welcomed you. 

The web of your College life was woven in years fateful to human history. 
In your Freshman days the tumult of the World- War was about you ; your brothers 
and friends were in the midst of the conflict. You gave yourselves to your part 
with courage and glad sacrifice. You shared in College the burden of the War, and 
on a great and memorable day you greeted the dawn of Peace. 

Throughout your College years grave questions have entered into the lessons 
of the day. Familiar words have taken a deeper meaning. All the time you 
knew that you were making ready for service; you looked forward to the work 
which awaits you, and you strove to become fit for responsibility with honor. 

And now, facing forward, you go forth to your chosen task in a war-stricken 
world, where mankind is slowly spelling out the meaning of the awful sacrifice, — 
of the still echoing conflict. Humanity is striving to hold fast the great goods of 
life. Every earnest soul must help to bring peace and good- will. Each and every 
one of you will be needed. 

Pause then, at the threshold ere you pass, to dedicate your lives anew to this 
high service. Go forth to brave, honest, generous work; to effort unstinted; 
to noble comradeships; and to the endless striving to understand. May your 
work deserve and find abundant blessing. Our love, — -unfailing, — abides with 
you always. May God be with you!

"Gert" "Duchy" 
"It's wiser being good than bod." 
'Way back in 1919, a — dare we say, plump, little maiden with 
a slow engaging smile wandered into these diggings, but Ye 
Stern Austere Simmons Efficiency hasn't spoiled her yet. For 
Pete's sweet sake, Gert would put up with a good deal in the line 
of Economics, but in Business Methods she shakes her shorn head 
and casts a piteous eye on the diabolical levers and keys and 
figures that mask under the name of "Wahl Adder," then bolts 
for the door three minutes before the bell, followed by Miss 
Heath's baleful glare. It's a great life, Gert, if you don't week-end!

"Peg" 

"// is by presence of mind in untried emergencies that 
this native metal is tested." 
This here girl who can smile even during the ordeal of being 
"taken" is a genius when it comes to songs and soups. Peg, 
armed with a Waterman, due at a song rally in eleven minutes, 
plus three gems, is a familiar sight around here. Will 1921, nay 
Simmons, ever forget the scintillating grinds of Junior Prom 
time that flowed from Peg's inspired pen? Nor will we forget 
the many, many little odd jobs that have been turned over to 
her and done willingly and well; tasks unknown, unsung, but 
done with that same old cheerful grin. Yet now and then, 
strange rumors float over Muddy River to our editorial ears, 
which lead us to believe that Peg is — well — a "gadder." Not 
so, Peg?

Jennie Anderson 

"The thrill of a happy voice and the light of a pleasant smile." 
Jennie believes firmly that variety is the spice of life. In 
her four years of college she has managed to attend three different 
institutions of learning, thereby qualifying as an authority on 
"College Life as She is Lived." We are glad to state that Sim- 
mons has had the benefit of two of those years. Needless to say, 
we rejoiced last fall to find Jennie back on the job, as debonair 
and original as ever, with her talent for fortune-telling quite 
intact. 

In her wild young sophomore days, Jennie was given to be- 
guiling innocent little seniors with tales of the Wicked Wild 
West. Being h senior herself now, she has acquired dignity, and 
has even developed a deep interest in Lunch Room Management. 
Hut we might add in passing thai she spares a thought now and 
then to the absorbing abstract (?) question of "Ranchers vs. Civil 
Engineers."

"Ah", "Abias" 

"And Mistress of herself though China fall." 

Conceit, thy name could never be Abbie Andrew! Even after 

four years of training, Abbie persists in being self-sacrificing and 

wo still have to protect her. It's Abbie who says, "Give me the 

neck," on Chicken Day, it's Abbie who makes the excuses for some 

one else, and it's to Abbie we go when "a fellow needs a friend." 

Nothing could make her madder but — we couldn't be gladder 

that we had her, than we are! 

The next time you put pictures up in the wee small hours, 
Abbie, try to land on the couch instead of the middle of your tea 
set!

Dorothy's awful smart, but even bright lights have their weak 
spots — and Dot just can't make mayonnaise. She and Dr. Mark 
have been taking side-courses from Miss Dow, with, er, fair re- 
sults to date. Dot looks at her unsuccessful culinary stunts, and 
instead of saying, "It's a bum job. Guess I'm no cook" that 
scientific and detailed mind decides that the "fat globules did not 
emulsify this time." Clever, and likeable, with a touch of en- 
dearing shyness — well, just ask any Pete girl what she thinks of 
D. Andrews — we haven't room here.

"Loveliness needs mil the foreign aid of adornment." 
While the rest of us flap around in low-heeled shoes and sordidly 
sensible clothes, with a "get by or die" expression, Rachel man- 
ages to stay the same debonair Ray that came here four years 
ago. Except that her hair and skirts have grown shorter she 
hasn't changed a bit. She isn't exactly strong on lengthy reci- 
tations or "deep stuff," but she's the prettiest girl you ever saw, 
happiest girl you ever knew, and best of all she's as nice as she 
looks. And when someone accuses our ( "ollege of being a habitat 
of hopeless grinds, we're going to point to Ray and say, "See our

Marian Dorothy Beebe 

"/ got through by the skin of my teeth." 
Beebe came to us to learn to be a secretary, but a glimpse into 
the realms of science convinced her that Bugology held a far 
greater fascination. Her ability to get music out of anything, 
from a piano or uke, to a group of her fellow students we can 
vouch for, because many a time she has tied herself into bowknots 
in an effort to extract harmony from a group of Sophomore dumb- 
bells. Her good nature and merry hail went a long way toward 
making third floor Bellevue the happy place it has been this 
year, but behind that genial jollity we've found a lot of real 
sound philosophy and a large-sized capacity for genuine friendship. 
You can count on Beebe every time.

anything created, helped along or put through, Marie's your man. 
When she goes after you, brown eyes twinkling — and dare we

seriously by that rangy slinger of the merry jest. We nnder-

From her vantage point in the front row, which her B entitles

called for — and otherwise. She pops up now and then at Dorm 
Council, manages the Connecticut Club, and trudges dutifully 
out to Freshmen Houses, otherwise her time is spent in Biology 
Lab. with a bottle of ink in one hand, and a microscope, test 
tubes, a thermometer and sundry glass jars in the other.

"So<i)>! Soap! Hen you! Where's your soa/>*' Well,

Say you! Got your soap dr., and ad infinitum. 
Who doesn't know Blissy? Nobody! Who hasn't heard 
Blissy? Nobody (fervently)! From out of a group of girls will 
come a little high piping voice "Oh, I had the bes-s-s-s-st time!" 
and you know she's not saying it because "it's done," but because 
she couldn't help having a good time, even selling soap. Blissy's 
never worried, never hurried, yet she does every single thing, 
goes to every single thing, and enjoys every single thing in the 
place. Speedy, whether at hockey or final exams, accurate at 
baskets if not at typewriting, and likeable! If you want a poster 
made, ask Blissy — or a jaunty youth — Blissy steps into jeans — 
or a May morn dancer — again Blissy. We're sure that the coat 
of arms of this resourceful young woman must contain a little 
white life-saver with the neat black printing "Those wanting

the job of managing the lunchroom was wished on her. We 
judge that Agnes believes in a few friends rather than a motley 
moll of acquaintances, but she has cultivated genuine friendships 
along t he way. There is a great deal of sound common sense and

won't forget herself and say, "Come up this aisle, please, and

Ed is a pretty busy Senior these days, but all her duties fail to

all that a dashing college girl should be — a touch of sportiness, a 
touch of style, a touch of hauteur, that's Ed, and with a tennis 
racket or a mandolin or an adoring sophomore tucked under one 
arm, as the case may be, she is a charming addition to any land-

The reason is 'way out West, but East is West for Mildred. 
Heavens to Betsy, didn't she fool us though. She waited till 
Christmas vacation, got us all out of range, then — announced her 
engagement! And now something on her finger is sparkling the 
news, arid we are all so glad and happy for her. 

It means a good deal for a girl to do in two years what many 
can't do in four — win the firm affection of her friends. Mildred's 
gang absolutely swears by her, which only proves their good 
judgment. But Mildred, thine eternal joyousness! How come? 
Can nothing trouble you, nothing wrinkle that placid, intellectual

Under her guidance the Musical Association flourishes like a

time to capture a mighty creditable record in class work.

"Brownie" 
"Every morning seems to say 
Something nappy's on its way." 
And when Mabel scampers into the hall for a nine o'clock class, 
we know that very something has arrived. Poets who write 
about golden hair and sunbeams and gladness think of girls like 
Mabel, little boys with marbles in their pockets and fishhooks in 
their hands would call her a "regular fellar." Girls at Simmons 
describe her as "a peach, who'd do anything you asked her to do." 
Bet she has a calling list that would outweigh the laundry list for 
a family of thirteen. Bet there isn't a thing she can't do, from 
Dramatics to typewriting to sewing buttons on. She's a handful, 
if not an eyeful, and she doesn't miss a thing! Maybe we're not 
glad she belongs to '21.

Connie has tried everything in college at least once, from run- 
ning the elevator to running Gladys Hatch. Her ability to elicit 
adds from reluctant merchants amounts to a genius. In fact, 
it's plain, highway robbery; she backs them up against anywhere 
at all, gets out her finger, taps it briskly, and shoots a clever, 
charmingly impertinent line that makes them frown, smile and 
nod "yes." Connie holds the record for losing fountain pens, 
storing away food, and never getting plain, downright mad. 
Sympathetic, kind-hearted, charming — she has made countless 
friends here, and in that very rosy future which stretches before 
her, we know Connie's way will always be the delightful and 
happy way, "because she makes it so."

It was only through her personal request that she was not elected

catalogued, and done up brown. To have opinions on many di- 
verse subjects will doubtless be of inestimable value in a Library, 
for many enter there whose minds are full of misgivings. Pity 
the plight of the poor man whose wife sends him to ask, "Please, 
Miss Librarian, my wife wants to know what to give the cat." 
Elinor will regard him coldly for a moment, then, "Salmon, you

"When as in silk my Dottie goes 
How sweetly flows 
The liquefaction of her clothes.'' 
Dotty is little and quiet, but oh my! We once thought her 
timid, but no! It's just quiet composure — she is sure of herself. 
Her never failing gentle manner puts most of us lusty-lunged in- 
dividuals to shame. But alas! — that's an inborn characteristic — 
not to be acquired on state occasions by any rollicking tomboy. 

At first we were afraid Dot would die of starvation from lack 
of lunch because her gentle manner was so peculiarly unfitted for 
the mob tactics necessary in the Lunchroom every day. But 
she wins out there as she does in everything else, and even has 
time to capture a coveted scholarship to Woods Hole in the 
bargain.

"Skitter" 
Judging from Helen's ability in collecting friends and A's dur-

tion was strong within her. Her proneness toward the "Ever- 
lasting Yea" is an outstanding feature. She positively cannot 
say "No" to anything obliging to do for some one. And speak- 
ing of inborn traits, let us not forget humor. Anyone who could 
stand Henrietta for three years and laugh at Barrett's subtle 
(exceedingly so!) "jokes" must have a decided strain of humor or 
— tact (considerable of the latter). During her Junior year at 
Pete Skitter attained quite a reputation as a lawyer; let anyone 
in doubt consult her on the divorce evil or the Democratic plat- 
form, as not taught in 116. But even aspiring lawyers have their 
troubles; hers was an umbrella with a propensity for wandering 
and a newsboy who would leave the Transcript out in the rain.

And she is wondrous wise 
A grand success in lift she'll be 
Or I miss nig surmist ." 
'Tis none other than Lou to whom this choice poetry is penned! 
Yes. she is one of those blessed persons — has the very thing you 
want to know at the very moment you want it. It takes a Soc. 
class with Dr. Lefavour to develop a shy miss. And Louise 
showed us how wondrous wise she really is. He couldn't stump 
Louise in recitation and neither could you. if you shot a volley 
of interrogations at her. 

We wish we might have known you longer, better, Louise, but 
we are mighty glad that you came back to the good old class of 
'21 to gather in that well-earned diploma.

Doris Simoxds Fairbaxks 

"East, Wist — Home's lust." 
When Doris joined our ranks Sophomore year we gathered that 
she was a remarkably home-loving girl. Since, however, Devens 
has broken up and there is a budding Unitarian Club to be at- 
tended to, Doris has been more content with Boston-town, and 
North Hall listens nightly to hear "Telephone for Miss Fair- 
banks" at ten-minute intervals. Engagements by the score pre- 
vent Doris's life from becoming monotonous, but when she does 
play with us, maybe we're not satisfied! That good-natured 
grin ought to be framed and passed around; whatever happens, — 
even muffins seven days running, Doris just grins and bares it. 
Hut just to enlighten any library instructor who might read these 
lines with puzzled mein we'll say that our Doris and that dig- 
nified Miss Fairbanks of Library 31 B are no less than one and the 

- line person.

Margaret Teresa Farren 
"Peg" 
There may be Egypt in her dreamy eyes, but there's plain 
U. S. A. in her ragging-the-scale giggle; she begins at high C and 
goes up. No, it cannot be imitated, and practice is futile. Peg 
started out here as a demure student, but the Fates, who, with 
ingredients of gentleness, dignity and trustworthiness, maybe a 
pinch of pep and surely a half-cup of the dickens, had made 
Peggy Farren, would not be denied, and Junior Presidency was 
their decree. Her success at that needs no comment. Public 
duties over, Peg has sought a quieter life, and if it weren't for 
that elusive house key and lessons, all would be well. Peg is 
leaving Simmons an attractive and clever young woman, and if 
Life gives her the complete development which college has begun, 
we shall some day hear great things of Margaret Farren.

"Bud" 
"Fisher" — and her hook catches many firm friends, extra-

she says, "Darn" and "Suffering Jelly Fish" and awful things 
when she makes a mistake on the Oliver. But, good land, what's 
an Oliver good for, anyway, but to get your goat? 

At Serenade time, Helen offered us a refuge from inquisitive

Mary Catherine Flanagan 
"Flanny" 
A little girl, a big grin, a bigger coil of hair, and the biggest 
convineingest recitation — that's Dr. Flanagan. The Dr. is a 
bit previous, but inevitable so we might as well admit it. Any- 
way, what's an M. D. among friends! 

Mary's future was sealed when she made her valiant attack 
on a big grey cat in Biology 3. She autopsied the beast with 
the budding skill of a great surgeon. And it's she who is respon- 
sible tor the darling little kittens which escape from the green- 
house and "mew" around North Hall at unholy hours of the 
night. "Hum," coolly remarks the Dr. when accused of this 
let Science reign unconfined."

"Much ado about — anything at all." 
"Good Heavens! What's all the noise down the hall?" How

only to be told that Louise Foster was holding forth with one of 
her breathtaking accounts of how in Cookery I. she tried to freeze 
her ice-cream with crystallized sugar instead of rock salt, or what 
happened to her brand new pair of white kid gloves that she car- 
ried all the way to Faculty tea. We know that if we were con- 
tinually exposed to Louise as is 22 Pete we'd soon actually begin 
to think that life was one joke after another, and that every plate 
of cold soup has its porterhouse steak. Not only does she lift the 
low in spirit, but she has done yeoman service in transferring 
the weary and hungry from College to Pete House. Now that 
she's mastered the Eskimo language we expect she may teach 
young Eskimos how to make ice-cream — in her own individual 
way, that is, unless she does what all the other Fosters have done.

Madeline Viola Fox 

"And then she danced — heaven, her dancing!" 
"There was sound of revelry at noon!" 
Gone — the halcyon days of the daily Gym-jams, the days of 
the call of the wild, wild music that flew from E. Groves' nimble 
fingers, tearing us from the sterner realities to thots of jazz. 
Still with us, however, sweet memories of Madeline as she rolled 
up the mileage in that refuge of the restless, and unwittingly in 
so doing, restored the fast-sinking morale which somehow the 
Simmons Luncheon seemed only to have given a push downwards. 
But she can use her head as well as her feet; lovable, a joy to 
look at, but more so to talk to, a wittiness with a strangely 
Technical tinge — she and Blissy are a handful. But in passing, 
dare we mention that our Vice-President has her weak spots — 
and knees — when it comes to public speaking.

for dietetics and sewing and then, all of a sudden, you notice 
that a letter in the same handwriting came at amazingly frequent 
intervals. Each day you scrutinized the writing and when you 
questioned her, she replied, "Why, yes, my sister does write to 
me quite often," and you grinned knowingly! Yes, that girl is

The temperamental Rachmaninoff of the Class of 21!!! 
The loss of the use of the piano in the gym at lunch hour has 
been felt in varying degrees by most of us. But Edith! Ah, her 
case is a tragic one. 'Tis faintly whispered that during a Wed- 
nesday morning copying test she did drift into the strains of the 
"Prelude in F," or was it "Tell Me Little Gypsy" — leaving in 
the wake of the merry little keys strange hieroglyphics as O Dod 
ot tpdau. Let us not go further into the story. 'Tis far too 
tragic and too well known to bear repetition. Dids't ever hear 
Edith when the spirit moved her to an eloquent expression of her 
thoughts? Such words, long ones, strange ones, not to be found 
in the Speller that Dr. Eldredge wrote. Perhaps Edith knows 
what she means, it's more than we do — but from a faint twinkle 
in her eye, we sometimes have our doubts.

You can just bet that Edna, contrary to the allotted character- 
istics of very good-natured people, does not propose to be tram- 
pled under the foot of man, or of woman, either. But show her you 
need that umbrella, or any other possession, more than she does, 
you'll get it, gladly, even though your request takes the half of 
her kingdom. Hers is not an indeterminate character, "Once a 
friend, always a friend." There is just a suspicion that the rule 
sometimes holds for enemies. Simmons has changed Edna from 
a raw and rather hefty recruit, who just couldn't do Military 
Drill, to a trim, firm-minded young cooking expert — that is, 
except when the fudge gets balky!

"Peggy" 

"For my purpose holds to sail beyond the sunset, 
And the gleam of the western star." 
Have you ever talked to a girl and found her tremendously 
interested in economic subjects? And then found that she was 
equally interested in baseball — or history — or hockey — or a thrill- 
ing movie — or biology? If you've met a girl like that in '21 — 
and who hasn't — you'\e met Peggy Kelley. Since Sophomore 
year she and Margaret Farren and Molly Molloy have given us a 
modern version of the Three Musketeers, and for argumentation 
those kindred spirits cannot be — shut off! Life, the Future, the 
Great Beyond (in capitals) still keep them up till the wee small 
hours. And it's time well spent, for to know Peggie is better 
than any prescribed course. One may talk about courage and 
optimism — Peggy has lived them. This has been her fourth yearly 
edition of "How to do Twenty-Eight Hours' Work in Twenty-four, 
and Still Have Time to Live, Laugh, and — Make Friends."

But to speak only of the giggles of Myrt and her dusky little 
shadow Betty would be telling only half of the story. To see 
Myrt at her best you must be present when she is telling one of 
her stories. Her dark eyes flash, her arms fly in a characteristical- 
ly Myrt-manner, then "Zowie!" the story is ended. Without 
the "Zowie" it wouldn't be Myrt's. Hers is a temperament thai 
wins firm friendships even though it registers heat and cold 
faster than any thermometer. Her extremes are great, but then, 
so is she!

There may be a Quaker down in Quaker town, but there's also

guileless blue eyes and a shyness that is three-fourths charm. 
Although she commutes in the weird, unholy hours of the morn- 
ing and night we defy anyone to find a lock out of place, a speck of

"Beauty and Brains never went together." 
is all wrong. Clever, artistic, competent, yet always looking 
like one of her own magazine cover girls; add to that the ability 
to outtalk the highest highbrow in Simmons, and you'll get some 
idea of how Ruth smashes the above quotation. Whether she 
developes into a learned reference librarian or a charming teller- 
of-tales in some children's department, one thing we're willing to 
prophesy — that her bulletin boards will be fetching. Brinkley 
ladies and Voguey gentlemen will entice the unsuspecting to 
read Ibsen's "Ghosts," or Maeterlinck's "Blue Bird." But she 
can handle other things besides paint brushes, for instance a job 
as big and difficult as Art Editor of this here volume, requiring 
no end of tact, conscientiousness and plain hard work — in all of 
which Ruth is right there.

chance with "Ed" within diving distance. Speedy, deft, sure, 
she is the star of every match we ever had. And she plays the

her interesting. But gosh! how that girl can tease!

We challenge any long haired, spectacled Devotee of Learning to

she makes stunning hats; she teaches young mothers how to make

and E. Groves and K. Sullivan, looking like a million dollars, 
have flitted afternoonly to matinees and teas and what not! 
The remainder or Alice's time has been spent in Physics; she 
cleared that at last and at length only to feel the "unbalancing" 
effect of Accounts. But Senior year is seeing a different Alice — 
same old pep, but more earnestness, more seriousness. Guess

Shorthand, no horrors; she overcame the intricacies of the Awful

noble art of oratory, and surely did she have the courage of her

But she'd worn her golf socks, 
So she only said "Don't care if I did." 
In sewing; and millinery, too, 
She thought there was much that she knew, 
But her hats weren't right 
And her waists were too tight, 
And instructors said "These will not do." 
Did she silently drop a sad tear? 
And tremble with terror and fear? 
No! She shrugged a plump shoulder 
At all that was told her 
And grinned widely from ear to ear.

have been years of profitable work and study, with a generous 
dose of play mixed in. Lucile has a perfectly fierce New England 
conscience; she's a perfectly hopeless, inveterate chapel fan, 
school, Dorms or anywhere at all; she can also with the aid of a 
bathing cap, a key ring and a scarf or two, make the most terrible 
pirate or the slyest Peter Pan that ever graced a masquerade. 
Altogether, we're rather proud of Lucile, for more reasons than one.

Tot might have been a Famie Johnson or a Marguerite Bliss in

in her room, surrounded by her applauding gang. Tot's a changed 
woman. Always ready for a high old time yet just as ready to 
talk seriously, this well dressed young woman is what we con- 
sider a Regular Person, and if she tackles (he future with half

Doris Elizabeth Perkins 

Bitter blow, bitter blow! We had a nice write-up on Doris all 
done — about her being so quiet and gentle-like. But along came 
Chem. Journals, and all suspicions of Doris's quietness vanished 
that day. Would that the college could have heard Doris hold 
forth and forever go down to Time and Posterity as an orator, 
not exactly up to Elizabeth Royce to be sure, but an orator 
nevertheless; and we're so glad to hear it that we'll even rewrite 
up the write-up. Doris with O. Dingle holds the record for 
being our longest living commuter — all the rest have been killed 
off — or are being so gradually, on Dorm, muffins, etc. And 
don't you forget, Doris, that though Silence may be golden — 
what care we for gold? Filthy lucre, away! We want that voice 
again!

Helen Pierce 

"Piercey" 
Four years ago Helen, with her handkerchief firmly pinned on 
her blouse and her hat-elastic snapped under her chin, arrived at 
Simmons to learn every book — inside, cover, and all. And this 
is how she did it — President of the Academy. But. we suppose 
even Presidents of Academies can't be called on all of a sudden in 
Soc. 

They at Pete tell us that our Glee Club leader usually stops 
singing long enough to eat. That clear tenor has led our futile 
efforts, lo, these many years, that veteran uke has played "Any- 
body seen my Cat" and "And when I die" more times to (he 
square inch of string than any we know. There are few girls, 
however, who have gotten so much from college, socially and 
academically, than Helen Pierce.

"Mydeah!" 

For absolute cold-blooded, east iron incapacity for being phased ; 
Marian is without peer. Never have we seen her stumped; 
she has the cleverness and the nerve to write with flat finality 
on anything or nothing at all. Truly she may fool all of us some 
of the time, and some of us all of the time (except Miss Heath) 
but Marian, you can't put it over on all of us all of the time. 

May we add that this well-groomed young woman resides in 
the most attractive, pillow-laden, banner-bedecked room in the 
Dorms, that she appears at dances exclusively with beautiful 
Arrow Collar men, and that life for her is just one colored sweater

Clever themes and snappy class songs are as nothing to this girl, 
and what she can't do to a marriage ceremony isn't worth mention- 
ing. Pat used to be a good basketball player; that is, she could 
pick a ball off the ceiling as easily as not, but how she would fall 
down! Our mental picture of our center is mostly a lowly one, 
chin on floor, legs wagging in air. But worst and most of all is 
Pat's collection of admirers — it's a different man for every night 
in the week, and her correspondence is quite beyond the bounds 
of moderation. We hope they're tall, Pat.

Elizabeth Sarah Royce 
"In arguing, loo, the parson own'd his skill 

For even though vanquished, he could argue still." 
From Oberlin there blew into the peaceful Junior class an 
Unknown Quantity with a style and coiffure all her own, and an 
argumentative frame of mind that electrified more than one class. 
When Elizabeth crosses arms, knees, and swords with anyone 
living in a verbal running match, our bets are on Elizabeth. 
Mr. Carpenter, rather than retire from the field, used to start 
right in and simultaneously would they argue at each other till 
breath departed. But we can get used to anything, and once we 
knew her better we found behind that brilliancy of intellect and 
extreme individualism — just plain, ordinary, nice girl.

Katy took this young and budding class in its infancy and ran 
its Sophomore Luncheon, furnished it with rings, managed Junior 
Alumnae Conference, and during all that time never did she 
fail to hand in required theses and themes and sewing samples 
on time. Perhaps such perfection has prevented the greater 
part of the class from knowing the real Katy, but for the benefit 
of all of us we'll say that her 9:00 giggle has netted more than one 
misdemeanor, and she can't — just naturally can't — sing!

jotted down two words for every one which fell from the instruc-

ber of volumes would put the Congressional Library to shame! 
Even so, we cannot but admire the perseverance and attention

Mildred Josephine Scully 

They mark those little things 
Which most leave undone, or despise, 
For naught like tardiness to class, 
Of ever such a quiet lass 
Can get aivay from their sharp eyes. 
Mildred is one of that vast and happy throng who travel on the 
Boston Elevated, which has been anathematized so tellingly by 
one of our poets, "Go to the ant, thou sluggard." Mildred's 
day at Simmons begins at 9:30. We are beginning to wonder 
whether it wouldn't be a good idea to strike for a shorter working 
day, for all of us, because it seems to have such a wonderful effect 
on Mil's nature!

"Dot" 
Many a damsel who considered herself agile, as t'were, has 
been snatched out of the back entrance to the lunchroom by the 
ever watchful Dot and her faithful cohorts. That was months 
ago when we either didn't know any better or else our sense of 
responsibility had become warped under the skies of new environ- 
ment. Now 'tis different. She rules the lunchroom and we 
willingly, that is, more or less willingly, bow to her superior 
sense of cooperation. 

Before Dot became a Stern Keeper of Order we remember an 
artistic maiden to whose credit belong the creation of 125 clever, 
original, fetching Junior Track Day costumes — and farther back 
a much-thrilled, ecstatic damsel who started '21s engagement 
ball rolling.

When Shandie decided she didn't want to be any old man's 
private secretary and thought she'd rather catalogue books for a 
change, in our nice little optimistic way we remarked, "But 
you cannot change your course now — after two whole years of 
Sec." We will grant that when she makes up her mind to do 
anything it gets done — and what's more, she has made this 
change with the utmost precision, which is very characteristic of 
Shandie. 

She has the greatest penchant for knowing things of anyone 
we have ever seen. She can tell you in an instant either "the 
habits of the Prince of Siain" or the latest juicy bit of dormitory 
gossip. In fact, whether it is to tell you something or loan you 
something, Shandie's always right there with the goods.

No one need ever fear that conversation will languish when

many things on which Trickett can discourse. The best thing 
about her is that she can make us laugh at her stories. Ruth is

delicious flavor a thermometer can give to fudge until you taste 
Tommy's.

Marion Adelaide Turnbull 

"One pungent and ultra pertinent remark could put the 
lust of us iii our places." 
Marion was the cutest, per test little freshman that ever tried 
the patience of Hayes-Baker, — and in conjunction with Ruth 
Sanders she certainly could make things num. But Ruth S. 
departed for the West, Man entered, and presto, we have a 
different Marion. She returned to Simmons for Senior year only 
to be stricken with the Business Methods Blues. Anyone 
about to write a book, and desiring material on any of the follow- 
ing subjects: "What Makes Life Miserable," "Who Makes Life 
Worth Living," or "Terrible Tales of Trying Times," and "Sub- 
way Scenes," apply to Marion. 

Anyway, we envy Him, Marion.

Constance Louise Twigg 
"Twiggie" 

Connie is one of the girls who makes us realize the futility of 
write-ups. She is head and shoulders above us figuratively, good 
naturedly and capably. Booster of all class affairs, manager par 
excellence, and good friend to everyone in college — such is 
Twiggie. You can't help liking her, you certainly can't help 
doing what she says. .She has the longest business head and the 
broadest smile and the most original repartee of any one we 
know. Breezy, witty under all circumstances, and a staunch 
worker for '21 — such is Twiggie. 

It's darned mean, but we can't help recording a mental picture 
of Miss Twigg of Junior days flat on a slippery hockey 
field — worse than that, Miss Twigg attempting to regain her 
equilibrium, only to be deserted by that treacherous ground, and 
again to bite the dust. But neither can we forget that she took 
it, as she does everything — like the mighty good sport she is.

Margaret Christine Utz 

"Tutz" 
"Happy is the lop floor 
When Tutz is thereabouts. 
Happy is our Tutz (hough 
When "special" some one shouts. 
'Haps it's only faking, 
Whims or other guise — but 
'Haps she's only waiting 
With hopes to spring surprise!" 
Tutz looks demure enough and quite true she is, but when she 
comes in contact with a uke — maybe she can't make that old 
thing hum. She can dance, she can sing — makes us laugh like 
everything. Often times she plays with us, and again it's quite a 
spell before she gets that letter writ — or that theme she does so 
well. No matter what we ask her or what we want begun, once 
asked and gained an answer, we're sure it will be done.

"Ruthie Van" 
Ruth thinks she is going to be a dietitian, but between the Yale

think that her diatetical talents will be applied in another field. 
Ruth's sunny disposition is the envy of the many who have met 
her and gained her friendship, We like you more than a lot, 
care-free, happy Ruthie Van.

Marion Craig Waldron 
"Craigie" 
"Do thou, as best thou may'st, thy duty do." 
Wherever there is a speaker that needs an audience, wherever 
there is an audience that needs a speaker, there likewise is Craig. 
"Whatever there befalls her, she goes where duty calls her." 
Just now that stern mistress keeps her sitting on the Honor Board 
and whenever the rest of us seem likely to slip from that high 
plane, Craig urges us to take heart and scramble back. Then if 
we don't she gets behind us and boosts. If you want true appre- 
ciation of your merits, look to Craig; if you don't want frank 
disapproval of your too evident faults, turn your eyes from her 
candid ones. 

And even if she does electrify the floor by Scarlet Fever placards 
instead of a "busy" sign, we think, Twenty-onely speaking, that 
Craigie Waldron is just about right.

Gertrude May Walker 
"0, this learning, what a thing it is!" 
Gertrude hasn't been very noisy about it, but did you see how 
easily and calmly she carried off that scholarship this year, yes, 
and last year, too. Yet don't picture her locked in her room, 
surrounded by shorthand notes, ledgers and cash books, with a 
typewriter at hand for a plaything when she feels the need for 
recreation. No, far from it. Gertrude carries off the honors in 
typewriting class, and in fact, every other class we know any- 
thing about, but outside of school she plays her tunes on a more 
musical instrument, her mandolin. 

It's taken more than a few minutes to edit the Review as well as 
il has been edited this year. No wonder we don't hear much 
from Gertrude. With all this on her hands, how could you expect 
hei- to have time to shout about it?

Edna Veda Ward 

If there is one thing in the world that Edna likes, above all 
ot hers, to be, it IS sure. "Did you gel what he gave as an answer 
to thai question?" "I thought so." "Is this the way she wanted 
papers arranged?" "Well, it's what she said, anyway." Not 
for her are the joys of receiving a returned quiz and finding 
variety in the form of an "K." She prefers the perfectly safe and 
Bane method of studying the proper subjects at the proper times 
and ensuring for herself a series of tame upper-class letters.

Ruth Olinda Walker 

In t he quietude of North Hall lived an Academy Maiden with a 
Humor at once Subtle and Rare. Not for her the Plebian Paths 
of the Motley Mob — rather with Faith Shedd, Right Loyal 
Follower, did she prefer to explore the Lofty Realms of Literature 
and — er — Sewing! We saw just enough of Ruth at Sophomore 
Luncheon to make us want to see more of her, and we claim that 
any girl with Ruth's sense of humor and her powers of oratory 
has no right to be exclusive. Her small circle admire Ruth highly 
and well they may, for that God-given gift of humor and satire is 
mightily rare, but the rest of us have needed her too. We are 
willing to predict that if Ruth cares to, she may make a mark for 
herself in the literary world of the future as a scribe of no mean 
ability.

Did you ever know a girl who could uphold the dignity of 
Senior Class Presidency yet fool with a group of adoring Sophs, 
or who could come home from speechifying at a Theta tea and 
press M. Molloy's long suffering jersey coat, forcibly extracted 
from said disreputable person? Or who could tackle a mountain 
of work and yet have time for many a chat along the way? 

But there, you all know Rachel. Don't you like to see her 
wrinkle up her nose when she laughs? Don't you wish she'd wear 
her hair in those soft puffs again? And don't you love the trans- 
parent, ingenious way she has of keeping a secret! ! !

Helen Whiting Weatherhead 

A quick step, a gay little laugh, a vision right out of Vogue, and 
Helen Weatherhead has whizzed by. Does she love? What? 
to dance, or men? Well, we'll leave that to Helen, but she would 
never tell us all the other things about herself we do know. She 
is Miss Capability spelled with a capital C. and she is equally 
dexterous with needle, books, men or committees. If we have 
omitted anything, it's because we've forgotten it, not because she 
can't do it. We can't imagine this very pretty and exceedingly 
clever Young Person sneezing among dusty tomes. Our Miss 
Spick-and-Span can play far more roles far more capably than 
most people can play one, has a heart that is bigger than herself — 
and all this hidden behind eyes that say, "M' Kid, I met the 
most wonderful man last night."

Dorothy Wells 
"Dot" 

"Laugh and the class laughs with you." 
That Dot! As an effective ejector of gloomy grinding and 
doleful dump, there is no one better. Nothing can ruffe her 
calm serenity and carefreeness. Dot's system of commuting is a 
joy to the innocent bystander. Clutching or mayhap dropping 
numerous books, bags, hat, etc., she backs into the car, has been 
known to back into a seat, vacant or no, and in three seconds she 
and her gang can reduce a crowd of grumpy strap-hangers to 
smiling human beings. We only hope that Dot's future boss has 
a sense of humor; Lord help him if he hasn't. 

But there is something else we cannot leave unmentioned — 
that woman's sneeze — a tiny, stacatto, falsetto sneeze that is as 
likely to come in the midst of a Congressional Record as not, and 
then we're lost. But we thank you, Dot, for the many, many 
moments of mirth it has caused."

Gladys Wheeler 

"Glad" 
Gladys lived up to the wisdom that is within her and transferred 
to Simmons from Russell Sage in her Senior year. Wish she'd 
done it sooner, because she has fitted into the Simmons scheme of 
things like an old timer. Those West House teas wouldn't be 
teas without her clever monologues, Shorthand wouldn't be 
Shorthand without that statuesque speed artist to rescue our 
daily average. Well-poised, well-informed, well-bred, she is 
going to make someone a secretary par excellence. We might 
add that every time she looks at Harvard Medical, Gladys is 
thrilled through and through, because to her mind it compares 
so odiously with Yale.

"Nothing like a high collar U> boost a professional grade." 
from the stacatto click of her heels to (he straight determined

she plays tennis swift, sure, straight from the shoulder. Dor- 
cas entered the business world via Mr. Babson's Statistical Shop, 
and when on that memorable first day Mr. B.ibson dictated just 
what was to happen for the next live years, did Dorcas renig? 
She squared her shoulders, jumped into the game, and nailed all 
t hat he said and probably more. We'd like to tell her prospective 
employer thai she can do a lot more, too she's a mighty good 
ticket taker, and could play the piano just line for all his Y. W. 
meetings.

Barbara Wiggin 
"Barb" 
"God bless the man who first invented Sleep!!" 
When Barbara arrived in the Here from the great We-Know- 
Not, modern fairies had abandoned the custom of bestowing hand- 
me-down silver spoons at christenings, and were giving the most 
sociological gifts. "Too few people are clever with both their 
brains and their hands," announced one brisk spirit; "The rest 
of you can do as you like, but I'm going to give this child the 
Predisposition of Workmanship." 

Which accounts for the fact that Barbara can do whatever she 
chooses to do well, even to sweeping the mats all over the grass 
and 1st floor North. When she says she will lend a hand, you 
may well sigh with relief. Worry no more. At the eleventh and 
a half hour Barbara will present the offering of deft fingers, and 
nimble brain. What matter if she does like the soft spots of life 
pretty well? And knows the use of the Remark Satirical — she 
hasn't lived with E. Childs for nothing. She has the redeeming 
feature of a great generosity, also.

Pegasus can be harnessed to the typewriter or the pen, so to 
speak, we get a theme or a Review article that has all the piquancy 
and originality of Hubie herself. 

Now temperamental people should be tall and lean, habitually 
heaving sighs. Plump little Hubie doesn't look the part but she 
surely acts it ; she's the balkiest scribe that ever tried the patience 
of an Editor. She's cleverer than most of us put together, and 
although we can't imagine what she'll do out in "the world," we 
can be certain of one thing — it won't be humdrum or common- 
place if Hubie's around.

THE Microcosm Board has followed the precedent of former years in keeping the 
book a record of the four years of the Class of 1921. In the Microchaos sec- 
tion, however, it has departed somewhat from this policy, and introduced material 
of more general interest to all classes. 

A change in the printer brought about the consideration of a change in the cover 
of the Microcosm. It has for a long time been felt that the former cloth cover was 
far from artistic, and it is hoped that future classes will see fit to adopt the new 
cover. 

The Editor wishes to express her gratitude and thanks to Louise Foster and 
Ruth Thomas for their faithfulness in collecting snaps, and to Alta Osgood for her 
work on Microchaos. To the members of the Board whose constant and untiring 
work made this book possible, the Editor cannot express her appreciation.

MIC Show is always the jolliest, most informal, larkiest good time we have, and 
this year it was all that and then some. At 7 o'clock the Refectory was be- 
seiged; at 8.30 there wasn't even squeezing room. And did they see a Show? 
They saw a Production, a Histrionic Work of Art, a Microcosmic Masterpiece, with 
choruses, costumes, curtain, footlights and even scenery. 

The Show opened with a dialogue between Typical Types of Simmons freshmen, 
who are bored to extinction by the drab dullness of freshman life. Marion North 
as the Western girl, was strong on the "rough stuff"; Corinne Buchanan, the 
Cultured girl, has knowledge unlimited and an air Bostonian; Agnes Broward drawl- 
ed in her delicious Southern way, and couldn't that Esquimcau grunt! Last but 
not least, Squirley Sprissles herself, no less than the inimitable, irrepressible Lou 
Gillis, without whom this Show would have gathered unto itself its skirts and 
goosestepped out of existence. Nor can we forget Nasturtium, the Hectic Hound, 
who rolled in Squirley's wake, or the beach umbrella nay, the circus tent, which 
covered her graceless head. 

But no! A voice from the blue a hopeful, lilting voice calling out the mystic 
word "Mic." But yes! A gleam of hope, a something "interesting," after all. 
Over the top of the curtain the Spirit of Mic, Betty Wheelock, '21, bids the Types 
to turn back the pages of Mic, darling, diminutive little white satin pages, "and 
you will see, just what I've got in me." The blue velvet curtains obey Marie Beers, 
and No! Yes! Weeelllll! A six-foot Microcosm persactly like the real one, seal 
and all, and out of its covers, which the Pages turn back, comes the .Show itself 
parodying the sections of the Book,

Before a huge drop 
on which glowered 
Faculty incarnate, 
stood Edna Bonerims 
High Neck Ground 
Gripper Muddle, with 
her chorus of the Fac- 
ultooty of the Pene- 
trating Eye. The 
Facultooty of the Pen- 
etrating Eye was en- 
joyed hugely by the 
front rows of Them- 
selves, but back of that 
it was received howl- 
ingly, hilariously, hy- 
sterically by an appre- 
ciative mob, and "For 
I Am The Simmons 
Faculty," bids fair to become a Simmons classic. 
On came the Classes — the Freshmen in rattles,

baby dresses and carriage, who 
were "raised on a bottle before 
they came here"; the Sopho- 
mores, shushing vociferously; 
the Juniors "with debonair 
mien" and the Seniors in 
sketchy (knee) caps and gowns 
over a fluffy ballet affair — 
danced in, on, and off to a 
beautiful ditty about "this Sim- 
mons College right on the Fen- 
way." 

Dormitory Government rev- 
ealed Rachel Ward in nighty 
of ancient cut, curl papers and 
cap, despairingly trying to con- 
trol her frisky chorus, who 
pranced through a dance and 
limped off with balls tied to 
one ankle — "four happy little 
convicts in a first-class jail." 

S. A. A. scene proved to be 
the most effective of all the 



137

scenes — a huge dial which you may gaze at on the preceeding page, and as Brownie 
lyriced about S. A. A., heads representing the sports, the peachiest heads with the 
hughest smiles, poked themselves through the numbers at her bidding. Follow- 
ing this the Shade of the Editor chanted a Doleful Dirge to Boards Gone Before, 
which apparently came from the lungs, but which really came from the heart. Then ! 
Then! And then came Prom Scene! Men — not "lean men nor mean men" but 
beautiful Mic men in Tuxedos and the janitor's very last collarbuttons; girls, not 
mere see-them-every-day girls, but Mic girls in the very best gowns that the com- 
bined Dorms boasted, danced — Lordy! how they danced until "the chaperones 
appeared" in lorgnettes, frowns and black dresses, and separated the couples, and 
"off they go alone." The Spirit of Mic, who had fled disconsolate at the intrusion 
of men in her book, is found sitting forlornly behind the covers. "We Want Our 
Mic," the choruses call. The Prom Man brings her down, and the grand ensemble, 
balloons, chorus, Mic Song and all, is launched. 

For the love of Mic, the choruses and the leads struggled patiently through vile 
rehearsals, lighted only by R. Franc's guiding genius; Marie Beers and her famous 
hammer built and put up the raised platform; M. Allison and her faithful Ethelinda 
constructed costumes that were marvelously clever, and R. Lloyd painted nightly on 
North Hall Bpsement floor the drops like unto Keith's or maybe the Hippodrome. 
To them all, and to the many unnamed and unsung who labored long and got 
scolded mightily for lessons undone, the Editor and the school at large give their 
grateful appreciation for the best informal Show Simmons ever produced.

Margaret T. Farren 
Secretary of I he Women'* Intercollegiate Association for Student Government. 

OlMMONS had the honor this year of holding the Secretaryship of the Women's 
^ Intercollegiate Association for Student Government, and at the conference 
at Elmira in November, 1920, the Association accepted the invitation extended by 
Simmons to hold its next annual conference here! The delegates from Simmons 
were Famie Johnson, Marion Peirce, and Margaret Farren.

Student Government! What are we going to make of it? The classes that 
have passed on have bequeathed to us an organization and certain customs. Are 
we accepting the organization and the customs and refusing the very essence of 
Self Government — Responsibility ? 

The scope of power of the Association has enlarged every year. More freedom 
has been granted in every direction. But — the scales must be made to balance. 
Just so surely as our freedom increases, so must we accept a heavier responsibility. 
We cannot fulfill our debt to Simmons by making a money gift to the Endowment 
Fund. The fulfillment of that debt requires a more personal gift — our time, 
strength and enthusiasm. 

Student Government will be a success or not directly in proportion to the de- 
gree in which each one of us accepts the trust which has been placed in our keeping; 
if faithfully carried out, it will teach us here in a small way the responsibilities we 
must assume as college women in the larger field of life.

PHE Academy, the honorary society of Simmons, was founded to supplement 
-*- the technical clement in our courses, and to bring before the students the 
"value of the non-essentials." We are technically trained for our field of work ; 
we must also be culturally trained for the great task of living. In our pursuit 
of the technical, we must not lose sight of the fact that art and literature are equally 
important . 

The ability to feel and appreciate beauty, the unwavering loyalty to the high- 
est and best, the pursuit of the culture that broadens and ennobles, these are the 
qualities thai the Academy asks of Simmons girls. 

This year it was decided to adopt for the Academy insignia a small, triangular 
gold pin, instead of the former circular medal. 

Membership to the Academy is open to both graduates and undergraduates 
who have attained fifty percent A points, or twenty-five percent A points and ninety 
per cent A and 15 points, in academic courses.

THE Dormitory Government Association plays a most important part in the 
lives of the <^irls. who live in the Simmons Houses. Its ambition is to weave 
a garment so fine and firm that the warp threads of co-operation and the woo! 
threads of honor will have greater strength, power, and endurance as each year 
comes. Every girl in the dormitories needs to feel that her individual help makes 
possible the carrying on of this aim. 

You who arc Freshmen — remember that you arc the inheritors of our tradi- 
tions and the prophets of our future. 

You who are Sophomores think hard of the ideals of Dormitory Government, 
and remember thai an individual spirit of partisanship means success to its hopes. 

And vmi who arc Juniors, soon to he Seniors realize- that your active respon- 
sibilities arc near at hand. Good preparation for power comes only from your 
sincere co-operation. 

Self Government brings with its many problems of dormitory life, a sense oi 
responsibility, and individual partnership lessons, which are invaluable. Co-op- 
eration and loyalty to each other, to the college, and to the best that is in us these 
are the things that Dormitory Governmenl means.

A LTHOUGH its activities have been somewhat curtailed, owing to the 4.30 
■*- *- ruling and the impossibility of noon hour meetings, the Civic League has 
nevertheless endeavored to maintain its ideal : — to establish a point of contact be- 
tween the students and the outside world of events. 

The Red Cross has been reorganized, and in the fall conducted a very successful 
drive for membership in the National Association. In the intercollegiate drive for 
New England and eastern New York women's colleges, Simmons stood fifth. We 
followed the presidential election with much enthusiasm, and a straw vote was 
taken, giving Mr. Harding the Presidency. After Christmas, Civic League had 
charge of Mr. Hoover's drive for European Relief. 

We had as speakers: Mrs. Petick-Lawrence of England, and Frau Yella 
Hertzka of Austria, who spoke on "Conditions in Europe due to the War." Miss 
Lavinia Newell spoke during the Red Cross Drive.

THE Simmons College Review aims to bring into closer co-operation the faculty 
and administration, the alumnae, and the undergraduates. Each of these 
three distinct groups has its own particular interests, and it is the purpose of the 
Review to present matters not only of interest to the individual groups, but also 
to the whole big group which constitutes Simmons College. 

It includes an undergraduate, an alumnae, and a faculty and administration 
section. Besides these it contains a literary department in which is printed work 
liv someone other than undergraduates as well as undergraduate work. The Col- 
lege Anvil is devoted to general discussion of the conduct of college life. The 
"In Our Library" section attempts to acquaint students with some of the contents 
of our library. 

The problem of the Review is unique. It seeks to do the work of three maga- 
zine: in one and at the same time to bring the three into closer union.

pHE Honor System is the foundation stone for our Student Government, our 
-*- Dormitory Government, and for every other organization in College. This 
stone has six faces. On the top face is written Honor. On the four sides are Co- 
operation, Loyalty to our college, Responsibility and Courage to stand up for the 
right whatever the crisis. On the bottom of this stone we have Privilege, depend- 
ent upon the sides. Our Honor System gives us privileges, but with them must 
come Responsibility. Remember that the system is just what we make it. Can we 
not climb higher and higher up and over the hilltop on which Simmons would raise 
its standard? We are beginning to see t'he day when Simmons Honor Standard is 
based not on rules, regulations and boards, but on public opinion ever supporting 
firmly the name for which Simmons stands — that is, Simmons for Honor and Honor 
for Simmons.

STUDENTS, Alumnae and friends of Simmons will long remember the Endow- 
ment Drive of 1921. Returns in the fall showed that each class had far sur- 
passed the figure set as its quota for the work of the summer. Fall, too, found the 
mightiest preparations for the best, the very most remarkable Bazaar that ever 
could be. And it was all that and more. We worked like Trojans, from the loyal 
Alums to the juvenile Freshmen, and we have reason to be justly proud of the 
showing we made those two days, to say nothing of the princely sum we realized— 
$6,000. 

Then followed the campaign for soda-less days, shine-less shoes and wave- 
less locks. To a girl, we became users of Thoro soap exclusively, and from .all 
these things a very tidy sum was realized for the Endowment Fund. 

The Student Building Committee wishes to express its appreciation here for 
the wonderful CO-Operation which it has met in its work. The students and the 
Alumni individually and together have worked faithfully and enthusiastically for 
this greal end. The first year of our $3,000,000 drive is K r oinj^ to close not only a 
financial success, but also with a far greater success our increased love and ad- 
miration for this new, wonderful Simmons ol tomorrow.

You've all helped make 1920-21 a mighty nice year for Y. W. ! 
Under the new basis, we've gone ahead with new purpose and 
High enthusiasm. Girls, you've helped a lot. Thanks! 

Simmons gives us a greal deal, but it demands much in return. 
Here at College we have a chance to give our very best. 
And that is where the Y. W. comes in. 
Important as mental training is, 

Spiritual development mustn't be forgotten. 
To grow spiritually, — that's our aim: to grow in 
Breadth of mind, in capacity for service 

Not only "Bigger meetings," but "Bigger lives" is our aim. 

Will you ever forget Brewer Eddy's address? 

Or that peppy meeting when girls from other colleges spoke to us, 
Most of us enjoyed that series of fundamentals, too. 

To say nothing of social service work, teas, and Vespers at the 
Dorms. All of which makes you feel of some usel 
That's why Y. W. appeals to most of us. 
It's been a dandy year! And we hope 

1921-22 will be the happiest year of all, for the Y. W. C. A.

TV /TENORAH, a collegiate organization, has as its purpose the study and advance- 
■!•"■* ment of Hebrew ideas and culture. Here at Simmons, by means of study 
circles and lectures, the Menorah attempts to show to the Jewish and non-Jewish 
students alike just how the Jews have contributed to the law of human civilization. 
The lectures are given by laymen and rabbis who are well-versed on some particular 
aspect of Judaism. The study circle is strictly a student organ, with a student 
leader, and the members of the circle are induced to do some research work of their 
own and to enter into the discussions. 

The Menorah Society aims to develop closer friendship and loyalty among its 
student members, and although still young, its influence has already made itself 
felt. It is one of the primary instruments in making Jewish education and cul- 
ture prevail, and merits the support of all its members.

THE Christian Science Society of Simmons College has endeavored more than 
ever during 1920-1921 to fulfill the purpose of its organization: to bring about 
a greater realization of friendship and co-operation among the Christian Scientists 
of the college; to welcome entering Christian Scientists; to increase its love and 
friendship for all members of the college; and to offer to those so desiring, an oppor- 
tunity to learn the truth of Christian Science. Meetings have been held every 
Friday afternoon in the Students' Room. 

On October 28, L920, a reception was held in Marian Rawson's room, in South 
Hall. 

During the latter part of January a lecture on Christian Science was de- 
livered at the college by Mr. William I). Kilpatrick of Detroit, Michigan and a 
member of the Board of the First Church of Christ, Scientist, Boston, Mass.

pRUE to the ideals of its Patron, Cardinal Newman, the Newman Club has 
-*• continued its work during the year 1920-1921, creating a bond of union among 
the Catholic students at Simmons, and strengthening them in the knowledge of their 
religion. 

At the regular monthly meetings held at the College, eminent speakers have 
lectured on timely subjects of interest to Catholic students. Through the kindness 
of the Religions of the Cenacle, four meetings were held at their Convent. 

In consideration of its vital present-day importance, a Social Service Committee 
has been formed, which visits hospitals and Homes and creates a truly missionary 
spirit among the girls. 

"The Newman Quarterly" and "The Field Afar" are at the disposal of the 
members, and keep them in touch with the activities of other Catholic Clubs 
throughout the country. 

Although not yet two years old, the Newman Club has definitely established 
itself as an important element in the college, and its influence is keenly felt.

THE Simmons Unitarian Club which was started in 1020 has developed re- 
markably well during its short but successful existence. It has aimed to 
unite the young Unitarian women of Simmons in greater interest in the church, 
and to strengthen the bond of friendship between them. Its membership includes 
all Unitarian students registered for courses in the college, bul it extends a cordial 
invitation to all who may care to attend the meetings, held the fourth Thursday

class with the aid of Mr. Hilliard and Miss Jost. Membership in this club includes 
all Juniors and Seniors classified in the Science school, and those Seniors who are 
taking thesis in scientific subjects. Honorary membership extends to all the facul- 
ty in the Science Departments. 

The aim of this club is to promote interest in the sciences, and to cultivate 
good fellowship between those specializing in the sciences. The club meets for 
discussions on scientific subjects, has outside speakers or faculty speakers, and has 
many good times.

Het #= dramatics, at Simmons; 



WHEN William Shakespeare stressed the relative unimportance of nomencla- 
ture in general, little did he know how applicable would be his words some 
few hundred years later, when Dramatics at Simmons had become an established 
thing. For although the Club has reached the ripe old age of five winters without 
having acquired a real title, it is chiselling for itself on the tablets of college life a name 
which bids fair to place it at the head of the playtime activities in Simmons. 
Since no suitable name seems to be forthcoming at present suppose we 

Let x equal the Simmons Dramatic Club. Now since the Dramatic Club is 
equal to Anything and Everything, the Equation ceases to be a mere working 
hypothesis and becomes a conclusive, convincing fact. 

As an example there was "Playgoers" 



Given : 



Required : 



To Prove: 

Result : 



No stage, no scenery, no entrances or exits, a floor space in 
Room 1 16 so narrow that the problem became one of avoiding 
the audience. 

To put on a play to catch the attention of the more or less 
floating Bazaar population, and after catching it, to spell- 
bind it with a play at once brief and beautiful. 
That difficulties mean nothing to the Dramatics Club. 
"Playgoers." Quod Erat Demonstrandum.

So instantaneous, and remarkable was the success of this- the first real play 
of the season, that words are not needed at all. "The Amazons," although fre- 
quently given in amateur theatricals all over the country, never ceases to charm with 
its delicious naivete and unusual plot. The spirit of the play was extremely well 
caught by the players, whose enjoyment was so infectious that the audience were 
quite carried away, and on January 21 the play was given again with a repetition 
of the initial pleasure and enthusiasm. 

Xot only wns "The Amazons" a clever and thoroughly delightful piece of 
work, but incidentally a goodly sum went to boost forward the Endowment Fund.

Spurred on by the success of "The Amazons" the Club chose for the next vehicle 
"Alice Sit-by-the-Fire," which is one of the most delightful and whimsical pieces 
ever produced by the versatile pen of that most delightful and whimsical of writers 
— Sir James M. Barrie, and it is also the most ambitious thing the Club has yet 
attempted. 

The play was delicately shaded as a piece of exquisite music. From its "lait- 
motif" of gay irresistible humor it comes down in a tumbling crescendo to an odd 
solemn minor which may or may not be fraught with a hint of tragedy. There is a 
gay little laugh behind the lines, however, which quickly dispels any impending 
tear. The Club's interpretation of the piece is Barrie at his best — fanciful, wist- 
ful, charming — altogether queer and dear. 

The guiding spirit of the Club is Miss Hale, who gives generously of her time 
and energy and ability in coaching our plays, and to her the Club is most grateful.

A I ^HE Musical Club this year has been made a greater factor in college activities 
■*- than ever before. Under Mrs. Carlton Slack the Glee Club, the Choir and 
Special Chorus have done exceedingly well. Each of the choruses has practised 
diligently once a week, and the results are certainly noticeable in the quality of 
music at Chapel each week. At Bazaar the Glee Club gave an excellent concert 
on the nights of November 5 and 6, and the regular midyear concert, together with 
the Commencement number completed their collegiate program. This year the 
Musical Association has embarked on a more ambitious undertaking and has done 
considerable concert work outside of college circles, with very marked success. 

The Mandolin Club, with the able training of Mr. George Lansing, has de- 
veloped wonderfully and at practically every entertainment this year the Mandolin 
Club has enlivened intermissions with very well rendered selections. At Jordon 
Hall, in one of the outside concerts, the selections from the Mandolin Club won 
very favorable comment. New music, an outside coach, and able leadership are 
all combining to make the Mandolin Club a pleasure, a source of enjoyment both 
for the players and their audiences. 

At the first meeting of the year, with enlarged clubs and increased enthusiasm 
plans for "more and better music" were adopted. It has been felt for some time 
that we have far too little opportunity here to sing together or to acquire much 
appreciation for music. Step singing helps greatly on the first, and by its weekly 
practice and concerts the Musical Association tries to develop the second.

Simmons is going to entertain the Fourteenth Annual Conference of the Women's 
Inter-Collegiate Association for Student Government, in November 1921!! The 
Women's Inter-Collegiate Association for Student Government is composed of 
about forty colleges east of the Mississippi who have student government organiza- 
tions. Each college sends two representatives to the annual conference, which is 
held during a week-end in November. The conference affords an opportunity for 
the various colleges to discuss student government and college problems in order 
to obtain mutual help and suggestion. 

The conference in November 1920 was held at Elmira College, Elmira, New York. 
Simmons was the Secretary for this conference. Famie Johnson, Marion Pierce, 
and Margaret Farren represented Simmons. The conference was delightful and 
profitable in every respect. At the closed meetings questions pertaining to student 
government were discussed. At the open meeting Mrs. Rosenbury, President of 
the Association of Collegiate Alumnae spoke about the importance of student 
government and the ideal college girl. Her talk was very inspiring and practical. 
Elmira entertained the delegates most cordially — there was a tea, dramatics, and 
a beautiful trip by machine to Watkins Glen! 

At the Saturday meeting of the conference the invitation extended by Simmons 
to the Association to hold its next annual meeting in Boston was accepted. This 
means that in November 1921 Simmons will entertain about one hundred girls 
representing the various colleges east of the Mississippi. It means also that the 
President of the Student Government Association of Simmons College will be 
President of the Women's Inter-Collegiate Association for Student Government. 
It means that Simmons receives a scholarship from the Association. It means 
that Simmons has the opportunity to show to all the colleges east of the Mississippi 
the Simmons Spirit and the Simmons Ideal!!!

Goodness gracious mercy me ! 

Is this Simmons? Can this be 

The Temple of Learning and studes sedate 

This flower-laden, happy, thronged place! 

Girls as ushers everywhere 

Girls so smiling and debonair 

Yet skillful of finger and keen of mind, 

Demonstrate subjects of every kind, 

Dainty garments in Sewing they show, 

Hats that are miracles! Then we go 

To Labs, where starched and neat as pins, 

Serious cooks stir and test delicious things. 

From the hockey field sounds of battle, 

From 1 1 7 the click and rattle 

Of Typewriters going at speed phenomenal! 

Then the Gym! Booth so gay 

Charmed the eye and the money away. 

Address by Miss Arnold and Dramatic Play 

Surely a wonderful, wonderful day. 

IL'entoot 

No wonder they love it, those girls who are there, 
Simmons famous, first, foremost in our hearts 
forever and aye.

IN September the new point system for athletic awards went into effect. By 
means of this system it is hoped to raise the standard of athletics in the college, 
and to make the awards mean more to the ^irls who win them. 

Tennis singles called forth a goodly number of contestants this fall and some 
very exciting sets were played on the day of finals. 

Thanks to the coaching of Miss Dial) and Miss Collett, hockey progressed 
rapidly in the fall and one of the features of the Bazaar was a game between the 
"Odd" and the "Even" teams. The annual Hockey dinner was held shortly after 
the final games. 

Basket-ball did not begin until after the Christmas recess, giving us a shorter 
season than usual, hut a great many girls came out, and basket-ball went oil with 
the same enthusiasm, in spite of the shortened season.

After a most unexpected practice season, with the Sophs playing brilliantly 

and the Freshmen scoring a victory over '2:>, we settled down to business and the 

final match saw a Junior-Senior conflict in the same old time-honored way. The 

Juniors played well bul with E. Lundstrom shooting a basket a minute, the score 

mounted almost out of sight, and that basketball cup which last year strayed to the 

Junior camp came back again to L921. 

Then the grand finale, the basketball dinner, at which we presumably ate, and 
assuredly sang and speechified to our heart's content. A final scrap of a final song 
"So one last song to all of you 
That CUp don't help, we're so darned blue 
Got to leave for the cold, cold world 
S. A. A. farewell" 
and '21's happy, twice victorious and wholly enjoyable athletic career was over.

Doubles last spring went off with a snap, ending in a quick victory for the 

Freshmen, R. Thomas and F. Jennings. Then, with K. Van Nest and Edna Boyd, 

they journeyed over to Radcliffe for an informal game, and F. Jennings won the 

singles. In the return game, Simmons won two out of the three which were played.

In the Singles this fall the two underclassmen finished off the upperclass 
opponents without much difficulty, and then the game that was a game started. 
Yerxa and Moorehead were very evenly matched, and both played a masterly 
game, but the victory went to 1924, and for the second consecutive year Tennis 
honors were captured by the Freshman Class.

/^ONTRAKY to the usual hockey weather, we had a grand and glorious autumn,

fun. Then came the games! 1923 kept the Senior team on the run for some 
minutes; H)22 won easily over L924. Then after a desperate game, 1922 defeated 
1021 to the score of 3 to 2, and carried on the precedent of a Junior victory. Con-

LOOKING 'way back from Serious Senior days, Freshman Frolic is one of our 
happiest memories. In the tiniest and frilliest of 'little dresses and with curls 
or pigtails flying, we romped and rollicked through all the dear, foolish games of 
childhood. Three bashful little boys, Masters McDowell, Durand, and Whyte, 
came to our party, and it is even rumored that they pulled a dainty curl or two, as 
little boys will. We sucked lolly-pops, and licked ice-cream cones and when five 
o'clock came, how we hated, hated to turn into grown-up girls again.

"Clink, Clink, drink deep to the Juniors all. 
Clink, Clink, drink deep to the Freshmen small. 
Clink, Clink, drink deep to the Seniors hoar. 
But empty your glass 
When you drink to the class, — 
Here's to the Sophomore!!" 

— Miss Park's Toast. 

WITH tiny streamers and pink tea roses, the every-day Refectory became 
"Paradise enou'," and 1921 's first real, grown-up event was on! 
We were so astonished when our erstwhile mere classmates "rose and orated in 
manner most charming. Then! Those Smart Sayings in which we discovered all 
sorts of hidden things about our Sophomores Susies and Sarahs. We giggled at 
Faith Shedd's clever impersonations, — our tall rangy Faith even tackled Mr. 
Collester! — and we roared outright at Izzy Graves' impassioned plea for the Egg. 
How we surprised ourselves — and Beebe — by bursting into much melodious harmony 
all to onct. And because a luncheon is also a Luncheon, as well as a gay Sopho- 
moric outburst of melody and fun, we must recall vague memories of such mun- 
dane things as chicken salad. - - - 

And behind it all, '21 's Spirit grew and waxed mighty and strong. Famie's 
speech we will never forget, and with hearts thrilled to the core, we left behind for- 
ever Freshman Days and Freshman Ways, to follow her to a bigger and fuller 
college life.

ON Mave morn ve austere efficiency of Simmons maydes was softened with 
flowing draperie of cheese-clothe and apple blossoms. With the sonne did 
they arise to see a righte glorious procession of fairie dancers and daintie pages 
escorte ye May Oueene and her consort to the throne, amid blossoms gaie. Ye 
fairie maydes danced about the maye pole to praise the beauteous morne and ye 
lovelie class of 1919. 

On our Queene's goldene haire, the noble, statelie king placed a maye crowne 
of roses bathed in dewe. Eache Sophomore then knelt before the Queen and re- 
ceived a faire pinke rose in token of remembrance of the gentil Seniores. 

Gude songs of praise to the Seniores floated out on the breeze, where likewise

Girls will be boys at some time or another; 
They yearn for just once to be hailed as a brother; 
So with trousers and collars and moustaches gay, 
They escorted their sisters to a jolly cabaret. 



SOPHOMORE-Freshman Cabaret — the best party we ever had! Do you re- 
member that Refectory, with tiny tea tables, roped off to form a dancing floor, 
and dotted over the landscape — behold — many youths and maidens fair, said 
youths strutting around with all the freedom and nonchalance of long jeans, but 
yet with ever a watchful eye for the descent of a Scandalized Matron. 

With Monsieur Famie James we saw the dream girls of a "Bachelor's Reverie." 
Edith Siskind, a natty little boy in white flannels and sweater, played to us on her 
Hawaiian guitar. We danced and drank and danced again to our hearts' content. 
How proud we were of ourselves, how attentive to our "best girls," how secretly 
fearful of the "day of reckoning!" But nothing happened, and OH! wasn't it a 
beeeaauuutiful party!

It was a Modern Mariner 

Who started out to sea, 
Rose Standish was the good ship's name 

Bore a merrie companie. 



The bow she dipped, the bow she dove, 

The bow strove manfully, 
To uphold the Simmons picnickers, 

Nor duck them in the sea. 




Laden was the Junior class, 

This merrie companie 
With Goulash, Dogs, Yellie and Yam, 

And lucre — enuff for three. 

And by the hand each Junior clasped, 

Very protectingly, 
A Serious Senior, who for once 

Gamboled Gleefullv. 



And lo! Mid Mirth and Pickle Limes 

Was held an auction sale; 
Irrepressible Ella "drew" the map, 

Ruth Scully pulled the pail 

and our pennies, verily 



Upon the sand we dumped our togs, 

And Molly's Mandolin, 
Which, tuneless, voyaged down and back, 

Bui hence, Fatal Subject! And then

We strove with might and main to pull 
Those Seniors off the map — not Ella's 

With rope we thought that class to fool 
But this is how we didn't! 




And fair ones yearning to splash in the waves, 
Departed and presently 
Mermaids in suits so brief! so gay! 
Sported in the sea. 




To cover every mere detail, 
That made our trip complete, 

We mention rather casually, 
The fact that we did EAT 

Of Food Conglomerate ! Then 
We slid, we galloped, we 

Roller Coasted in Paragon Park, 
And shrieked right lustily. 




Then homeward caroled we our way, 

This tired companie, 
Those sunburned Seniors and Juniors gay, 
Broke, but happy as 
we 
could 

be!

'T^HE Senior Housewarming was a great, big, hearty lark, featuring Old Clothes 
-*- and New Enthusiasm, when the Seniors gaily assembled in North Hall Base- 
ment for some real, baek-to-Freshman-days fun. Good old Marie Beers! 1921 
parties wouldn't be parties without her clever management. Marie recruited 
enough willing workers to have the corn popped, the candy sizzled and the apples 
sinned to a rosy brilliance. 

Jenny Anderson's Army "fell in" and staged their Upsetting Drill. It was an 
uproar from start to finish. Such costumes — no artist would paint them. Such 
actions — and '21 once had military drill! 

By groups we illustrated popular songs. Rachel Ward had a happy thought, 
and ordered all Galli-Curci's to the West end of the Basement, and all-er-Bliss- 
Buchanan-Rumbles to the other end. Ha! A concert, we thought. But from our 
subtle President came, "The East end will please render a song." They rendered, 
somewhat heroically, "John Brown's Baby had a cold upon his Chest" — with illus- 
trations and much applause. 

Then, after we had eaten popcorn balls and pulled molasses taffy until we stuck 
to everything but the floor, we gathered around to sing just once more our old, old 
songs. 

Did we have a good time? I just guess! And have Seniors forgotten how to 
play? Just ask the Army!

GLEANED FROM THE MANDOLIN CLUB 

Correct way to plunk a mandolin: Pin music to the back of the musician (?) 
in front, clutch instrument firmly to yourself, and with eye glued on "the place," 
foot firmly and resoundingly beating time, mouth open, and rapt expression, come 
down on some string — if the wrong one, care being taken to avoid D. Higgins' 
baleful glare. 



Speaking of the front part of the audience viewing "Mic" Show as enjoying 
the show in contrast to the people in back, one girl remarked, "They laughed up 
as far as they were sitting down."

NORTH HALL TELEPHONE CONVERSATION 

"Oh hello! Well, I was here all the afternoon! No, no one told me you called. 

Nope, I can't. I'm going to see the Mic Show. No, Mic, not Mike. No, 
M-I-C. It's a show. 

Hey, keep still out there — there's a mob of howling girls outside here, and I 
can't hear a thing." 

The Amazons are here soon. No, of course, they don't live here, but it's 
coming — the play, I mean." 

(Voice from outside) — the most awful dinner. I only ate — I wrote eight 
letters and had 'em all accepted, and — Well, Laura Mallett never did have waves — 
— (Hastily and too emphatically) — No, mine are natural! — 

Wails of despair from the telephone booth ! 

"Hello, Yes, I am here but I can't hear! What, What, I say I am but I can't. 
Here! Hear!" 

(Voice from outside) "Give her a chair!" 

"Yes, I'd love to. I'll have to take a chaperone." 

(Suppressed giggle from the line outside). 

"Yes, I will, 7:30— Good-by."

Pathetic, unrecognizable 

Pile of scraps,

Animal kingdom — unwanted,

You'd have said

ON MIC ADS 

Out of the Throng of Simmons Girls the 

Adv. Mgr. descended, and with Stern 

Peremptory Voice announced that 

You, your Free Time, and All your Peace of Mind 

Were henceforth dedicated to the Pursuit of 

Mic Ads. Oh, Gosh! 

With much Starch in your Shirtwaist but 

Pitifully little in your Spirit you 

Go Forth to Battle. Mentally you decide — 

For Fat, Middle-aged men, be Buoyant, 

For Young and Self-assured men, be 

Winsome and a little Shy; 

For Wavering men, be 

Domineering. For Grouchy men — 

Oh, Lordy, what do you be with 

Grouchy men? 

A Voice, Decisive, Cutting — 

"Well, Young Woman!" Surely he's not 

Wavering ! 

"Would you care to — are you — may 

I — Your Mic 

Ad?" 

"Blank, please," snappily, and somehow 

You find yourself 

Outside 

WITH 

An Ad. Easy! 

A Pile of Papers, a Volume of Vile 

Cigar Smoke — a huge Scowl. 

A booming, "Well, G'morning. Wha' c'n I do f you? 

Ad? Too busy. Nope. Don't pay. G'bye." 

This kind of man wasn't 

On the list. Guess for this kind 

One rings for the Elevator. 

Ann rang. 

Next man was — 

"How many girls see this book? How many 

Look at the ads ~ J . How many 

Sales can we count on? How many — " 

His capacity for Questions was 

Squalled only by her capacity for 

Lying! 

"Well, I'll take a quarter page, if you'll 

Put it at the Top, on the very 

First Page." Nerve! 



220 




Next one was "gentle and kind," a 

Benign Individual who thought the day was grand 

And Simmons was a fine school. 

"Sure, I'll take — guess I'll take a 

Whole page." Ann restrained the Impulse to 

Die on the Spot ! "How much? 

Oh, $00! Mmmmmmmm. Guess I'll make it an 

Eighth of a page. Good luck." 

Five o'clock. And you start home 

Feeling 

Like a Million Dollars 

Or rather 

Like Almost -a- Page-of Ads. 

And you Prance triumphantly 

Up to that Adv. Mgr. and lay your Offering 

At her Feet. 

To meet 

A Withering, Blasting, Scathing — - 

"Zat all! You Lemon!" 

Goo' bye! 



Once, when I was But where had my money 

Broke, early in the month, — Gone. Oh! where? 

As usual, — I wondered 

Whether it were best And then I heard 

To my Stern Male Parent to again Of the "Student's Expense Book." 

Make myself humble, "Just the thing 

Or to pawn my ring. To show to Dad !" 

So I bought one. 

And then I tried to enter 

The cost of it in the proper 

Place. But after much — 

Oh, very much, — worry and 

Reflection, I entered it 

A Debit to Sales. And 

Dick laughed. 

So I pawned my ring. 

And the last time I posted 
My allowance under 
Carfare, I sunk that book 
In the Fenway, and hurried 
To my modiste. I have 
A feeling I can account for 
My capital better, when 
Like a man, I have 
Pockets. 

Perhaps not !

SOPHOMORE GHOST WALK 

It is a watchful Junior lass 

And she stoppeth one of three, 

"By thy marcelled locks and bone-rimmed specs! 

Now wherefore stoppest thou me?" 

"The Sophs are met, the feast is set 
In the dark Refectory. 
But I am bound, by all that 's brave 
That there you shall not be." 

Another Junior jumped out from the left, 
Out of the dark came she ! 
And with great might, but 'twas not right, 
They smuggled away the three. 

But fifty or sixty other Sophs 
Came safe to the rendezvous, 
With faces white and candles bright 
And a hollow cough or two. 

And they were swathed in their very last sheets — 
Some had ta'en them from their beds — 
And pillow slips knotted into horns 
They wore upon their heads. 

"Forward! March!" hissed Peg Durant, 
"Clank them chains real loud, 
And remember solemnity's the thing 
When you prance around in a shroud." 

Then with ghostly dirge and stalely tread, 
Through South Hall and North, 
The chains did dank and the pale moon sank 
And the Sophomore line moved forth. 

Into the dining hall for eats 

Around the steaming cauldron. 

Our breath we hold — weird tales are told; 

Perhaps 'tis by Craig Waldron. 

Too soon 'twas o'er — the doughnuts gone, 
The waistbands all stretched tight. 
Some ghosts muttered, while others sputtered, 
"We'll sleep on the mattress tonight." 

Efl < ions t hey (lit away each one 
Like spirits that graveward stalk, 
And slowly traced the Finger of Time, 
"Twenty-one's Sophomore Ghost Walk."

THE ODE TO MR. TURNER 

"On the wings of the night I was sported away — " 

As the poets and high-brows and such folks say. 

And what, do you ask, was the matter with me? 

Oh, nothing, my dear, but much ten o'clock tea? 

But out of the darkness a mocking voice said: 

"All totals in black and all rulings in red." 

"More careful writing, and quit the stub-pen. 

You'll get worse than "C" if you try that again." 

"Cash is a debit, you cn\lit goods sold, 

Mistakes 1 can stand, if you're careless I'll scold 

"You'll get catty questions each day in class 

Bui the tests are all fair, 

And you'll all surely pass." 

I turned and I squirmed to wake up from my dream 

( )h, those awful red lines' 

That Trial Balance! I'll scream! 

There's a din by my bedside 

My Big Ben alarm! 

I rise up in terror the morning is gray — 

And tho' breakfast be good

And an instinct within her that reaches and towers,

Conquered — tennis gave their pride a slump. 

First they took us and informed us, 

Stuffed with rules our fair young heads; 

When we failed to quite digest 'em, 
We were quickly hailed as Reds. 

In the lunch-line, at the book-store, 
We were jammed and squeezed about ; 

If we squealed through inadvertence 
How they'd shush and bawl us out. 

In the halls we waited vainly 

Mid the seething, bustling mass 
For our Juniors so obliging : — 

We were very late to class. 

Heavy doors we held wide open, 

Though our arms were piled with books, 

While the empty-handed Seniors 
Passed with condescending looks. 

But at last those days are over; 

We've grown strong in climbing stairs. 
Almost dare to laugh at Seniors, 

With their little whims and airs. 



Ticket Taker at Theatre: Here, I can't pass you. 

Skeet Morton: You needn't pass me, just stand where you are; I'll pass 
you. 

And she passed. 

Leona Bernstein: Did your watch stop when it dropped on the floor? 

K 1.1:0: Sure; did you think it would go through"'' 

Ethi.i. W'i.i.ks: See (hat good-looking fellow smiling at me? 
Julia Hurd: He's too polite to laugh out loud.
